Published essays : 1934-1939 by Eric Voegelin( )

17 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this collection of essays, which covers the years from 1934 to1939, we see Eric Voegelin in the role of both scholar and public intellectual in Vienna until he was forced to flee the Nazi terror that descended on Austria in 1938. Revealing the broad spectrum of thinking and scientific study of this relatively young scholar, Voegelin's essays range from Austrian politics, Austrian constitutional history, and European racism to questions of the formation and expression of public opinion, theories of administrative law, and the role of political science in public university education. Several essays serve as useful commentaries on, elaborations of, or synopses of arguments Voegelin made in the five books he had published between 1928 and 1938. Within these topical headings, there are multiple thematic threads that wind their way through these essays and that remain of interest to contemporary readers. Thirteen of the pieces contained in this collection are short items that Voegelin published in trade journals and newspapers, of which nine appeared in the Wiener Zeitung in 1934 and the Neue Freie Presse in 1937. In these we see two brief periods in which Voegelin played the role of public intellectual not only as a lecturer but also in print. These essays will be of interest to a wide range of scholars, including constitutional historians, historians of political science, political theorists, and students of Voegelin's later work."--Publishers website
Published essays, 1929-1933 by Eric Voegelin( )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume of The Collected Works contains essays published by Eric Voegelin between 1929 and 1933, the period between the publication of his first book, On the Form of the American Mind, and Hitler's rise to power, as well as Voegelin's two books analyzing the explosive race issues posed by National Socialism. The essays herein reflect the intellectual and political tumult of the period and their author's maturing grasp of political reality as he moved away from positivism and Kelsen's "Pure Theory of Law" toward a more refined and open philosophical stance. The heart of this shift is signaled by his emphasis on philosophical anthropology and on the decisive importance of the moral substance basic to political communities." "The topics of the essays are grouped around major themes in sociological theory, political science, and the theory of law. They illuminate the theoretical and practical impact of Voegelin's experiences in America as he increasingly engages European theories of state, especially the social theories of leading French and German scholars. In content, these essays include such pragmatic concerns as American theories of property, economic transactions, due process of law, and Austrian constitutional reforms."--BOOK JACKET

Nietzsche's tragic regime : culture, aesthetics, and political education by Thomas W Heilke( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heilke begins by examining Nietzsche's formulation of this crisis, especially his conceptions of "Romantic Pessimism," "Socratism," and Christianity. For Nietzsche, only a properly ordered education could resolve the problem of how one can transform a society whose fundamental cultural and political premises one rejects. Through education Nietzsche sought to establish a new political and social system founded upon the principles of tragedy and grounded in the aesthetic tradition of German Romanticism. Nietzsche's Tragic Regime focuses on Nietzsche's political philosophy until his resignation from his post as professor in 1876, with attention also to the later writings
Eric Voegelin : in quest of reality by Thomas W Heilke( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During his distinguished academic career, Eric Voegelin was described as the most important philosopher of history and consciousness since Toynbee; similarly, Voegelin has been interpreted by his critics using virtually every ideological label available: fascist, communist, liberal, conservative, existentialist, fideist, socialist, reactionary, Jew, Catholic, and Protestant. With insights into the theoretical foundations of Voegelin's writings, Heilke's analysis and conclusions demonstrate how his subject was primarily a philosopher in quest of reality, and why no ideological category can grasp the core of such an intellectual journey. --From publisher's description
From ideologies to public philosophies : an introduction to political theory by Paul Schumaker( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What are the rights and duties of citizens? Who should rule? What is justice? How far should the authority of government extend? These are among the perennial questions of political theory." "This innovative textbook facilitates a comprehensive and systematic understanding of these and other questions by describing the alternative answers provided by the major ideologies of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and by a wide variety of contemporary radical and extremist perspectives. The book demonstrates that adherents to these various outlooks can come to greater agreement about these questions than is often recognized." "From Ideologies to Public Philosophies will be an ideal text for first courses in both political theory and political ideologies, helping students to gain a deep appreciation of the diversity of political thought and of the ideas that are central to the governance of pluralist democracies."--Jacket

Published essays : 1922-1928 by Eric Voegelin( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume of The Collected Works contains essays that were published by Voegelin from 1922 to 1928, the period immediately following his doctoral studies and including a two-year study trip to the United States. They trace his intellectual formation in the 1920s, which resulted in a critique of political science conceived of in exclusively legal terms, and a move toward one that examines the substratum of ideas and structures that provide the meaningful unit of a given political society. In light of his study trip to the United States, many of the essays reflect the theoretical and practical concerns he examined while there. Just as important, they also show how his experiences abroad amplified the direction his thinking took once he was removed from the tutelage of Hans Kelsen, one of his doctoral advisers. Voegelin viewed this trip as a turning point in his own intellectual development. Therefore, these essays reflect the growth of this outstanding scholar who was just beginning not only his career, but also an intellectual journey. This journey helped to crystallize and bring forth fundamental reformations of his science, brought on by the new perspective and approaches he experienced abroad. The topics of the essays range from the highly speculative—theories of state form, the science of Max Weber, the sociology of knowledge, Humean sociology, time and economy, and Kelsen's pure theory of law—to more pragmatic questions such as procedures for amending the American constitution, the workings of the U.S. Federal Reserve Board, class conflict in the United States, and a fascinating account of the deliberations by the French National Assembly that led to the 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man. This volume is key in exemplifying the movements in Voegelin's career—from a student to a scholar in his own right. These essays illustrate the works of a thinker in the midst of a crucial transformation of the principles of his science."--Publishers website
